Sabre-rattling and sanctions are the methods of choice for the US in its stand-off with Iran. But can this strategy force a climb-down in Tehran? Guests: Torrey Taussig (Robert Bosch fellow), Shayan Arkian (IranAnders), Rick Noack (Washington Post)
Following a new incident in the Persian Gulf and the launch of a military satellite into space, tensions between Iran, the US and Israel are mounting. Could this lead to military conflict between these countries?
Iran's paramilitary Revolutionary Guard is prepared for "decisive" action, its chief has said, should the United States attack any threatening Iranian boats in the Persian Gulf as Trump warned.
Iran has said the establishment of diplomatic ties between its arch-rival Israel and the United Arab Emirates is a "dagger in the back" of all Muslims, while Turkey said the UAE had "betrayed" the Palestinian cause.
The proposed cooperation deal between Iran and China is partly a result of Tehran's disappointment at the EU's failure to stand up to the United States. But not all Iranians think the agreement is a good idea.
